NH Democrats file new FEC complaint against Guinta


The New Hampshire Democratic Party has filed another complaint against U.S. Republican Rep. Frank Guinta in connection with his campaign finances and a Federal Election Commission settlement from 2015.

The NHDP alleges that the two-term GOP congressman violated the terms of the FEC conciliation agreement that he refund $355,000 in illegal, excessive loans from his parents that helped him to victory in his first run for the U.S. House in 2010.

FEC contribution limits per person, even for family members, was $2,400 during that election cycle.

Guinta claimed that he had an "equitable interest" in the money, and maintains it is his, despite the FEC's finding to the contrary.

As he runs for re-election, faces a Democratic challenge from former U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter.
